be quite lengthy. >> for more on this case, we will tend to john hooper in rome. berlusconi was sentenced to four years but apparently will only serve one year if at all. how likely is it he will serve any time? >> very unlikely indeed. the italian judicial system is one in which trials take a long time, and there are also very generous statutes of limitation that time out cases often before they have completed the process, which involved two appeals. so there is a long way to run. it is almost certain that sometime late 2013, early 2014, the guillotine will fall, and mr. berlusconi will not have to worry anymore about going to prison at least not as far as this trial is concerned. >> what about other investigations against the former prime minister? could he get additional time in jail? then he could indeed. the same factor applies as to whether in fact he would have to serve that time, but he is a defendant in three other trials, and by far the most embarrassing for him is the so-called ruby day trial, the one in which he is accused of paying for sex with an underage girl and

policies. it's just not accurate. host: john prible, because of these hurricanes that we looked at earlier in 2004 and sandy, will those rates go up overall? guest: not as a result of this particular storm. what fema is currently doing and have been for about 10 years, they're undergoing a massive modernization project where they are going across the country using scientific and engineering models to remap. we had a caller earlier who said that the map was old and out of date. that will not be the case. so there will be changes to flood zones over the coming years if you cannot already had a change. you may have one coming in the next two years. but it will not be the result of a particular storm or particular flooding event. these policies are different than private insurance policies in that regard. for example, if you have an auto insurance policy and get into an accident and make a claim, your insurance premiums going forward may increase because of your history. the national flood insurance program does not quite work that way. in that individual storms or flooding events don'
